-----------------------------------
My Notes: The AUD was squeezed, song by song, by around 4%. There will be some minimal phasing. The DSBD, while clean, is quite overblown, but my ears did not notice any clipping, although you can see it on the waveform. The very end of Birdsong is missing from the AUD. Chunks of Drums and Space were missing from both recordings, but not in the same place, so this recording is complete, except for some crowd noise before the encore that is missing.

Caveat: I don't take meticulous notes of every splice and adjustment I make, it's already time consuming enough, but I will explain my process. Every disc I make is seamless for longer media. I use the most reliable source, usually whichever is digital, if both are the same generally it's the SBD, and the other sources is time shifted to match that. With analog sources there is always some wavering. Within reason I try to adjust for the by making small, millisecond cuts, lining up the drum beats. These are smoothed over and when mixed with another source, undetectable. There still may be occasional phasing, particularly in the vocals and the cymbals. Believe me that I do everything I can to minimize problems like that. That includes cutting out spots of diginoise and blips and things. Whenever there is something missing from one source but present on the other, I bring up the volume a tad on the source that's left, to minimize the jarring nature of one source dropping out. When the crowd noise at the start of a set is less than two minutes or so, I don't make a separate crowd track. I export the final result to aiff files, and then convert those into flacs at the smallest setting, using xACT for Mac, and that also makes then SBE safe.

I hope everyone enjoys the product of my labor, and I'm glad to give something back to the community that has given me and others so much music over the years. Thanks, brothers and sisters.
